Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Complete)

The tiebreaker power is mostly a threat to force people to pay attention to the vote and hammer instead of NLing to wait out any compulsive mafia NKs. It is a bit odd that the epilogue votes don't go they way they naturally would if the game had been played out to zero, but as far as I know there is...

Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Complete)

I assumed a one-on-one would end in a tied vote and I could self-hammer for the win. Anyway, good game town, you got me. How would town players ever win at all in that case?
